How old are your birds? I doubt that it is the Cornish Cross laying the eggs ( they usually aren't the greatest layers). How dark brown is the egg? If it is rather light, I think that it is either the Golden-Laced (Wyandotte, I assume?), or the Sussex. Both breeds lay light brown eggs, the Sussex probably laying the lighter of the two (more of a cream color). My Silver-Laced Wyandotte lays light brown eggs. I do not know the exact color of Buckeye eggs (they are brown), so I can't help with that.

Age of the birds will help a lot.

My guess is the Golden Laced, as far as size, they all will lay a small egg at first. (However it could be the Buckeye! But not one of the others.)
The cornish cross will lay a large off white, to very light brown I believe.
The Sussex will lay a cream colored eggs.
As for the Buckeye, it will lay a
Light Brown egg.
